Every competitive chess player needs a sound grasp of how to play this opening - and especially how to meet the most popular lines. The Nimzo-Indian is Black's most respected answer to 1.d4 and is immensely popular at all levels, from club championship to world championship. In fact, the reputation of the Nimzo is so high that some players prefer simply to avoid it. American International master David Vigorito shows that this negative approach is unnecessary. "Challenging the Nimzo-Indian" provides White with a complete repertoire based on 4.Qc2. The chess is certainly at a high level, but Vigorito's logical approach and clear conclusions means that: readers can easily grasp the concepts and less-experienced players can play through the high-quality example games that are comprehensively explained.
David Vigorito is an International Master from the USA whose knowledge of opening theory is highly regarded.
